I am using RefWorks to cite document. The journal I am submitting document to is requesting JAMA format. How do I access this format.

The JAMA information for authors regarding references says to use AMA style and provides examples of references.

I just tested AMA 10th style in RefWorks and it displayed this reference for a journal article:

1. Assaf AV, Meneghim Mde C, Zanin L, Cortelazzi KL, Pereira AC, Ambrosano GM. Effect of different diagnostic thresholds on dental caries calibration. J Public Health Dent. 2006;66(1):17-22.

This references format is the same as those displayed in JAMA examples, so AMA 10th is the format to select in RefWorks.

To add AMA 10 to your RefWorks Styles

  1. Go to RefWorks
  2. Open the Bibliography drop down options in the top grey bar and select Output Style Manager.
  3. Select AMA -- American Medical Association, 10th edition from the list on the left.
  4. Use the Right Pointing Green Arrow to add this option to your favorites on the right.
  5. If you had Write n Cite open, close it and reopen it. You should now have AMA 10 as an option in Write n Cite.
